Year 9 and 10 Textiles students at BCHS have created a new batch of comfort bags for Blackburn Royal Hospital.
Each comfort bag contains a selection of toiletries including toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant and shower gel for use by relatives who choose to stay in hospital to support a patient reaching the end of their life.
The Hospital’s Bereavement Coordinator Erin Bolton said: “ I want to say thank you to everyone at Blackburn Central High School who helped design, create and supply such beautiful comfort bags. End of life care is becoming increasingly important for the Trust. Improvements are being made to better support bereaved families and we continue to make changes to deliver better bereavement care.”
“As soon as the students heard about the idea of comfort bags, they all wanted to help families who are
going through a very difficult time,” said BCHS Head of Design Technology & Creative Arts, Miss Howarth.
